The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating content for Asian children and the Asian Festival of Children’s Content 2012 is ready to take off! Get the buzz on an untapped industry for young readers with the big potential as we bring together content makers, international buyers and readers looking for books and related materials for children.
Some of the festival's highlights include:
Book Illustrators Gallery

The skill of an artist in creating illustration for a children's picture book often goes unrecognised. The Book Illustrators Gallery presents the work of picture book illustrators from around the region, showcasing their talent that crosses genres and borders.
Celebrating Our Stars

The Book Council presents Celebrating Our Stars, an evening for children’s authors, illustrators and publishers in Singapore to gather and share their latest works.
